WE've been there a few times for late weekend breakfast with the kids. They have a great breakfast selection and they have an outside sitting area with great views of the Burj and the fountains.

I was in Social House one time. It`is ok, but nothing special. Service is also not excellent, they need to pay more attention on the guests. I cannot recommend Social House, unfortunately.

I was taken out for lunch by a relative who lives in Dubai and eats there often. Sat outside , watched the display of the Dubai Fountains and ate good food!. Service was good and quick - and staff very pleasant and helpful. Meal not expensive .Can certainly recommend.

We loved this place. It has great staff, is a really nice environment & does great food. We wanted to sit outside but there were no tables, so the staff seated us inside & moved us as soon as an outside table came free. The food was great & the menu has loads of choice. You must try Grandma's lemon... More

Social house is one of our most frequently visited restaurants in Dubai Mall. The staff are very friendly. The manager Sam always make sure us have a pleasant visit. We enjoyed the breakfast menu the most. Hope the restaurant will bring my favorite " Messy Sally" back to the menu soon. The outdoor of the restaurant has a full fountain... More

Nicely decorated walls inside, in the middle of the hot spot outside. We remembered the delicious ice tea we took a couple if years ago and .... it is still on the menu: Grand Ma's Ice Tea (lemon flavored)!

This place was recommended by my aunt. She said it's a good place to eat with a good view of the fountain. Be sure to mention that you want to be seated with a view of the fountain. We ordered most of the rolls and they were all good. Our favorite was the dragon roll, a must try. Better to... More

We managed to get a seat outside which was great as we could view the amazing fountain display while eating food.The food was average i would say and you got the feeling they concentrated on getting people in and out quickly to maximise profit rather than put the effort into great food. The staff were all very friendly though and... More

Staying in Downtown Dubai

Neighbourhood Profile
Downtown Dubai
You can’t fail to miss Dubai’s iconic Burj Khalifa, the world’s tallest building. It towers over the city and resides in the prestigious Downtown development. Once an old army base, Downtown is now the jewel in Dubai’s crown, a beautiful residential and leisure area housing not only the world’s tallest building, but the world’s largest fountains and mall. Wide marble sidewalks are perfect for strolling, with restaurants, art galleries and children’s play areas. Specially commissioned sculptures line the roads and Downtown is often used as a canvas for modern art displays and community events such as Classic Car Shows and National Day parades. In the cooler months, cross one of the many bridges to the Burj Khalifa park and enjoy a picnic alongside residents and visitors, or enjoy a lunch or dinner watch the dancing fountains. Because of its mixed use, Downtown is a fantastic place to mix with Dubai residents and locals and watch real life unfold in a cosmopolitan environment.
